Sawmill/ Recycled paper WHAT YOU CAN DO Demand improvements to recycling systems nationwide. About 35 per cent of all paper products that enter single-stream recycling systems is diverted to landfill largely due to contamination from such things as broken glass and liquid waste from food and drink containers. That works out to about one in three issues of The Globe and Mail. paper mill come from forests that are regularly inspected and either replanted as necessary or naturally regenerate. Of the 402 million hectares of forests in Canada, less than one million hectares are each year (less than one half of 1 per cent of the total forest area). Canada has 91 per cent of its original forest cover, more than any other country. - RENEWABLE ENERGY asie cased biomass, such as bark and sawdust, are used for over half of the fuel (heat) energy at pulp/paper mills. CHIPPER Waste and trunks unsuited to lumber are chipped into small pieces. RECYCLED CONTENT The Globe and Mail is printed on recycled-fibre-content paper as product quality, availability and price allow. The demand for high-quality recycled-content paper far IN THE 3 The Globe and Mail works with newsprint suppliers such as Abitibi Bowater, Catalyst and NewPage, who operate under forestry agreements on responsible fibre sourcing and sustainable forest- management practices that are independently certified. These suppliers are covered by one or more of Canada's internationally recognized certifications for forests - Canadian Standards Association, Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative. The Globe is urging its suppliers to increase the amount o high-quality, third- party-certified newsprint available for purchase.

Wood chips - a byproduct of sawmill operations - are used to produce paper, and sawdust and bark are a ready source of biomass fuels. Trees processed through a sawmill produce minimal waste.

Initiativ implemented include discounted transit passes for staff, recycled paper for photocopiers, green bins for composting and waste audits to uncover opportunities for increased recycling.

TRANSMISISON Pages are sent to the press plants by fibre-optic network. PLATES SUSTAINABILITY MANDATE The pages are Aimaged by laser onto plates, which, in turn, are used to transfer the images onto paper. A combination of vegetable, soy-based, and UV inks are used at our print sites. The UV ink remains liquid until passed through UV lights, where it is dried. UV inks do not use solvents, and are free of volatile organic compounds. In heat-set printing an oxidizer is used to break down and eliminate VOCs, after the inks are passed through the dryers. TOWERS Each press is equipped with a combination of heat-set and cold-set towers, Here the plates are inked, and then the image is transferred to a blanket cylinder, which then transfers the ink to the paper.
